romney's allies went on television in california, they wouldn't be inclined to play defense there. they feel a little bit of vulnerability in those states. and again, if you take the non-battlegrounds, expand the map a little bit to include pennsylvania, minnesota, and maybe michigan, it's a much different calculation. >> karl rove is going to be putting up ads in pennsylvania now, the president is putting up ads in pennsylvania now. >> yep. >> suddenly the keystone state is the final week out up for grabs. why? not up for grabs yet, the polls show it close. but both sides realize that it's not safe anymore. >> what's the big deal to last week, we have enough money to go there. it's not the money on television, that's not nothing, it's the candidate's time, joe biden going to scranton. i suspect if things keep on the current trajectory, the president might have to go to pennsylvania, bill clinton might have to be there repeatedly. every day they're spending in pennsylvania is a day they're not spending in ohio. the republicans believe, not just rove's group, but some of the others

the federal government has a law in place called the defensive marriage act which basically means that same sex marriage cls ducted in the six states and the district of columbia that have marriage, for example, let's say that a couple gets married in massachusetts and god forbid one of those partner dies. the federal government has a law in place that does not recognize that legal marriage. so for the purposes of things like social security survivor benefits or internment in federal cemeteries or a whole number of laws having to do with tament tax treatment and things like that. that couple in the eyes of the federal government is not recognized as having been legally married. as you can appreciate in the case of death or some kind of family turmoil, that often has led to the emotional and financial devastation to that family. so for federal law purposes at least, the word marriage and the institution of marriage is incredibly important. but really it goes much deeper than that. it's really wanting to be treated as equal citizens under the law. host: our next call comes from illinois. sue,
on sequestration and costing over 200,000 jobs in our defense industries and jobs in virginia being at risk and obviously, our military readiness harmed. you listen to jack welch, he's exactly on target, what we see in virginia is people in washington with the epa regulations outlawing coal which is causing thousands of job losses in communities in southwest virginia. and i'm told virginians on day one if i'm sworn in as your senator introducing a law off our coast and with mitt romney in the white house, he'll say yes to our cold fields and our coast and we could have a manufacturing renaissance and also more affordable fuel and electricity and a better quality of life. so, we're trying to motivate and inspire people for positive constructive ideas, that can get our country ascending once again and i want to be virginia's senator. my opponent wants to be president obama's-- >> well, a very good campaign pitch there. i do want to talk about what you would do if you did get to the senate. it would be a lame duck session of the senate and congressman, that would have to handle some of the pre
, that the obama campaign's playing some defense there, but he can do it if he can win some combination of wisconsin, iowa or new hampshire. >> the ohio news organization poll has it a dead heat in that state, 49%-49%. and also staying in the midwest, in minnesota, mitt romney's actually sliced president obama's large lead in that state. also an independent state, 47%-44 rs 47%-44% according to "the minnesota startribune." you also add on top of that, in iowa, you have a "des moines register" endorsement which is huge. >> that was a big endorsement. >> that is a huge endorsement of that state. they haven't endorsed a republican since richard nixon in 1972. there are few endorsements that still matter. really matter. in iowa, the des moines register endorsement matters. >> not only that, look at the artwork on the front page. >> all right. thank you, barnicle. >> it's tightening up in the midwest. >> the midwest, wisconsin, minnesota. but the wild card in this thing we've already alluded to it is this storm. >> yeah. >> how does it impact early voting? power outages that might continue f

.3%, and the money that the federal government spent, some of it was defense, but a lot of it went for very preposterous wasteful things like community transformation grants, to organizations in south l.a. that do one-on-one street education, or 1.3 billion dollars to insurance co-opes that have a 35 to 40% expected default rate. >> alisyn: got it. >> so this is wasteful money to create new jobs before the election. >> alisyn: is this the kind of growth we're looking for, brian. >> no, but it's moving in the right direction and that's what the the american people are feeling and seeing in the numbers and let's remember, included in this was an 80 billion dollar bailout of the auto industry, which president obama pushed, which has helped with 1.5 million jobs in ohio and michigan. so let's be clear when we talk about government bailouts and spending, a lot of the spending is help to rejigger our economy with which by the way, mitt romney in the debate said he's for government guarantees and-- >> we're talking about the performance this quarter and it's terrible. >> we're talking about the fa
, and the secretary of defense sit and watch what happened in real time and not send aid to those people, if everybody understood that is what happened. then they went out and made up a story that it was some unruly mob when it was clearly a planned attack by al qaeda. guest: i think there are a lot of problems with that. there were not watching in real time. i don't want to get into the specifics of the actual and got the attack or anything around it. however, i think there's something important to be done. the full story will be reported. there will be investigations both by the house of representatives and by the state department. republicans to control the house of representatives, by the way. we look forward to those things coming out. whether or not expect a robust surprise, and pretty sure it's not, i'm pretty sure most voters are not paying attention to it and are not taking a close look at it. we will see how it all plays out. -- i am pretty sure it is not the october surprise. host: there's the "washington times" -- guest: this is the nebraska senate seat and senator ben nelson is retiring.
. that's why the money is coming in. that's why obama is really playing hard defense right now. >> larry, two things to watch in pennsylvania. in the west, you have the coal country. they're very irritated about the obama administration's regulations. and in the east, you have the philadelphia suburb philadelphia suburbs. romney is strong with republican voters. if suburban voters flip, romney has a real shot in the keystone state. >> if republicans are always worried about wasteful spending, this is a perfect example of wasteful spending. they don't spend any money in minnesota at all. >> one at a time. >> it's not that long ago. >> 1972 is the last time minnesota voted for a republican. >> i hate to say it, but it was richard nixon. now i've said it. robert costa, i want you to challenge my friend keith boykins. you're saying there's a horse race in michigan, and wisconsin. the numbers in wisconsin look even up. and in iowa, where the liberal des moines register just endorsed romney. so there could be some real midwestern upsets, huh? >> the point in wisconsin is true. keith boykins is
. now they are going up on advertising, sending their surrogates in because they are on defense on states that they considered very safe for obama, whereas governor romney is able to expand the map into states that were considered outside of that window and that includes states like wisconsin as well. that were considered safe seats -- double digit states the president carried in 2008. >> we have to let that be the last word but thanks for coming on the program. it's good to see you. >> you bet. >> susan, let's talk about the polls. gallup daily tracking poll is suspended because of sandy. but we did see a national poll that showed obama up by one, more significantly in the battleground states but some of the numbers are tightening. the gap is closing but does obama still have enough of a lead. would he still be considered when you look at all these polls in aggregate the one to be favored? >> i think if you look at the whole set of swing states, polls that president obama seems to have the small advantage, even though mitt romney is ahead by a tick in most of the national polls
. this is a wide, barreling, lumbering, defensive lineman where that was a sprinter with a smaller body and a faster wind speed. this big storm is now making wind speeds of 81 miles per hour out near martha's vineyard, 76 in long island sound. and making landfall literally hundreds of miles from there. a typical storm would only have the core of the energy, a core of the maximum winds very close to the eye. that's the biggest trouble with this is that the widespread damage -- typically if something happens in new jersey to the power lines, they'll call vermont and say, send your power company down here to get our lines back up and we'll come up to your state when you need the help. that's the problem. there are going to be 14 states with hundreds of thousands of power lines down. the mutual aid is going to be tough to come by in this area. they're going farther and farther away to get the mutual aid. the problem is it takes longer and longer for those bucket trucks to get there. i believe this storm will come onshore somewhere between cape may, wildwood, atlantic city. the eye is not re

that we needed to defend u.s. interest? if not, why? was it because of all these defense cuts? secondly if we had them why didn't we use them? because they were there and available. and the third one is why are we having this massive attempt to try to cover this up, beginning with this fictitious argument about these mobs and these protests against a video. and now we are looking at not even interviewing a key witness that could shed a lot of light on this investigation. bill: let me come back to that point, because the other bit of information that jennifer griffin was reporting last night from the pentagon, from her post at the pentagon is that there were at least two drones over this area while the attack was in progress, one arrived about an hour into it, was running low on fuel. that was replaced by one that fl flew in from italy. neither was armed. what do you make that of? >> well, bill, two things. first of all, we now know that the white house instantaneously knew who was happening in this particular situation. we are told that the president said that the military should do eve

. our whole government defense relies on the big board. stanley kubrick directed this and it has to be number one. there are no hanging chads in my number one because this is such a sharp, sharp joke about what happens when the government has to assemble and do something really quickly. now, you and i both know we're not exactly engineered for that. so in dr. strangelove, a general decides he's going to drop the bomb on russia, which is a huge problem. so peter sellers in this movie playing numerous roles as he always does, he has to kind of coral all of these people in the government and try to stop this, the crazy war that's going to happen just randomly on one day. and this movie just keeps getting better with age because, you know, lines never stop being funny, as our world gets more and more ridiculous in real life. like george c. scott and the russian ambassador are fighting and peter sellers has to break it up by saying, you can't fight in here. this is the war room. >> i love it. >> and it's a classic. 1964. you are reaching back. not to confuse it with "dr. no." you star
